they also said Kion Wilson might have shown them enough in the snaps he played to take the spot

more speculation

either way - good luck young fellas

kind of exciting to watch the young guys play defense

The defense may be the only facet worth watching until the line gets their shit together.......if they get their shit together.

Pass defense will be huge this week. It will be interesting to see how they do. I wish BR7 had Dalton's weapons.

I liked the Vince Williams pick when it was made.

His football IQ is amazing, and he's a natural leader. Sure, he would have to come off of the field on third downs, but so did Foote (Timmons stays on in the dime).

I wanted Williams to supplant Foote by Halloween. I wanted this, but due to Williams' play (not due to injury). Beggars can't be choosers. I'm just happy that he might start.

I think Williams will do fine, just don't look for the second coming of Mike Singletary this week.

Stoner has a point about the DL getting their crap together. When you have a Safety making 13 tackles in a game, mostly in run support, it's a glaring indictment your DL is not doing their job. This week against the Bengal, their guards will be getting to the second level, which means another long day at the office for Ryan Clark making tackles 6-7 yards down field.

Clark had all those tackles because Foote was being blowed off the ball. Its no different in past years. If you want to know how Steeler ILB's should play look up Kendrell Bell and Earl Holmes.

I wanted Williams to start this year too. If he plays like he did in the preseason, Larry Foote may have played his last down of football for us.

Let's go Vince. Show us what ya got.
